FRANKLIN, Tenn. — The CSCNetwork Board of Directors reports that it has appointed textile rental industry veteran Jeff Landry to the position of executive director.
CSCNetwork says that since 1979, its mission has been to help independent laundries stay independent. As a result of Landry’s comprehensive industrial laundry and supply chain experience, CSC says it will be able to further fulfill its mission: To help members compete and profitably grow their business.
“Jeff Landry’s appointment is viewed by the Board as a significant strategic move to improve CSC's buying power and positively impact its members,” says Ed Heilman, president of CSCNetwork’s Board of Directors.
“Jeff’s broad industry experience in purchasing and sourcing should help us form deeper relationships with our vendor partners. We’re confident that Jeff, along with Lisa (Wacker), Chinook (Deveraux) and Renee (McCollum), will give CSC a solid foundation to take us into the next decade.”
Landry is a 34-year veteran of the textile industry, with a primary focus on the rental laundry and healthcare markets.
During this time, he has honed a deep understanding of manufacturing, product development, sourcing and importing goods from the global marketplace. From chemicals and trucks to fuel and plant services, his expertise encompasses all aspects of rental laundry, negotiating and purchasing.
Additionally, CSCNetwork says Landry’s approach to engineering bottom-line results has led to strategic improvements in all aspects of industrial laundry operations.
“My participation as a vendor over the years has led me to develop a deep admiration for CSCNetwork while observing the productive work done on education and saving members millions of dollars in the process,” shares Landry.
“I look forward to supporting the independents while leading the organization in the upcoming years as the industrial laundry and global supply chain continues to evolve.”
He encourages members and suppliers to reach out at any time. He will be in the office full-time starting Oct. 3.
